Tommy Lee Moons Crowd, Announces He’s on OnlyFans

Tommy Lee has an announcement: You can now find him on OnlyFans.

The drummer ended Mötley Crüe‘s tour with a bang in Las Vegas on Friday (Sept. 9), using the stage as a platform to reveal his news to fans.

“Should we play a little game of I’ll show you mine, you show me yours?” he joked with the audience at Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium.

“I already won,” he reminded fans. “I showed you my s—. They took it down, off the internet.”

“Well, what I’ve done is I have now gone over to place where you can be free as f— and you can show anybody whatever the f— you want and they don’t f—ing take it down. So f—ing suck it. Boom!” Lee said in his update at Friday night’s show, pulling down his pants to show the world his butt covered with the words “ONLY FANS.”

“You can see all my s— over there,” he said.

Cardi B Shows Off New Face and Arm Tattoos of Son Wave and Daughter Kulture’s Names

Cardi B is proudly showing off new ink of her children’s names.

The 29-year-old rap superstar took to Instagram Live on Saturday (Sept. 10) to reveal fresh tattoos featuring the names of her son Wave, 1, and daughter Kulture, 4. Wave’s name is penned in light red-colored cursive on the side of her face, while Kulture’s name is inked in a similarly styled darker shade on her arm.

“I tatted my son’s name because I love him,” Cardi told fans in the brief clip, pulling her hair to the side and showing off the face tat. “And I tatted my daughter’s name,” she added, revealing the ink on her bicep.

Earlier this summer, the “I Like It” rapper’s hairstylist Luis Santana shared a video on social media of Cardi on a tattoo bed, getting some red ink done along her jawline. “Tattoo surprise,” Santana captioned the clip on his Instagram Story, tagging the hip-hop star.

Shortly after, tattoo artist Robinson De Los Santos shared a selfie with Cardi on his own IG Story, with the new facial ink on display, though it wasn’t clear exactly what the tattoo said.

Fans guessed at the time that Cardi may have gotten Wave’s name permanently imprinted on her face, because she hinted at wanting the specific ink in a tweet from earlier this year. “Random but ….I’m 1% close too tatting my sons name on my face….I really really wanna do it!” Cardi wrote.

Wave, who was born in September 2021, is Cardi and husband Offset’s second child together. Big sister Kulture is the couple’s first born. Offset is also the father to three other children from previous relationships.

Lea Michele Skips ‘Funny Girl’ Performances After ‘Early Signs’ of COVID-19: ‘I’m Devastated’

Lea Michele was forced to cancel performances of Funny Girl after experiencing early signs of COVID-19.

The Glee alum, who plays Fanny Brice in the Broadway revival show, announced on social media Saturday (Sept. 10) that she would be missing the day’s afternoon and evening performances at New York’s August Wilson Theatre.

“I’m devastated to say that due to early signs and symptoms of Covid and an inconclusive test result – due to the production’s safety protocols I’m not allowed to perform today’s shows,” Michele wrote on her Instagram Story.

After months of hype, the curtain went up on Michele’s stint as the Funny Girl lead on Sept. 6. She took over from standby Julie Benko, who had performed the role since original star Beanie Feldstein exited the production in July. The show also stars Tovah Feldshuh as Mrs. Brice, alongside existing stars Ramin Karimloo and Tony nominee Jared Grimes.

“I will be testing again and will know more about tomorrow’s performance soon,” Michele added in her note. “Julie is going to crush it today as Fanny – as are all of our amazing understudies who have stepped up so incredibly this week while we battle a very intense Covid outbreak in our theater.”

Michele’s latest Broadway role isn’t the first time she’s taken a crack at some of the musical’s beloved songs made famous by Barbra Streisand. During the first season of Glee, the actress’ character Rachel Berry gave an instantly iconic performance of Act 1 closer “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” and later in the series moved to New York City to star in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl.
